Which name would you like BM and RT to call themselves?:

What name would everyone like them to be called if the go out and on the road or record a album?

The reason I ask is ever time they have gone out as 'Queen' some fans (not everyone) get a 'little' upset to say they least.

Please lets have some constructive views not just slagging them off or just being negative, which since Ive been on this website has been the case(and Im not trying to start a bitch fest with that comment).

May and Taylor, M and T, Leo, Lions?

What would you realistically expect Brian and Roger to do with regards to listening to their fans?

I can't take credit for thinking of this, because I read it on a Queen board years ago, but I was always partial to 'Taylor Mayed'.

It occurs to me that the person who did coin that name may be among us now.

Taylor Mayed is a terrible suggestion. Seriously, name me ONE band that has done extremely commercially well with a name based on a very lame ass pun!

It is highly possible that I posted the original suggestion that they could use the name 'Taylor May'd'........its not intended to be an ass pun, and using the surnames of band members certainly didn't do Fleetwood Mac any harm!!!

We are all entitled to an opinion however, and I respect yours inu-liger.

All I'm saying is that, it's one thing to base your band name on surnames. It's another to combine those surnames to make a band name that ends up coming across more as a cheap pun, which no one will take them for seriously in the end.

It could be said that the name 'Queen' is / was wide open to ridicule, but it didn't seem to harm their career.

The damage has been done regarding the use of the Queen name, but I still hope they see sense.....

Anything but the use of Queen - perhaps the name of an old Queen song / album - that way there is a link to their past.

What damage? The whole Q+PR thing has sailed blissfully past most people without them ever knowing it was done, there's no "damage" done to Queen's legacy.

And Cosmos Rocks was a relative commercial failure, but I can assure you if it had not have carried the name "Queen" on it, it would not have done even as well as it did, and the very lucrative tour would certainly not have raked in all the cash it did. Sticking the Queen name on it certainly hasn't damaged their wallets.

Before we want to introduce the products about Michael Jordan Shoes, i think the
first thing to do for us is to introduce Michael Jordan to all the people who
like Air Jordan Shoes. After these 23 fans knows more about Michael Jordan, i
believe they will be more interested in everything about Michael Jordan, they
will be more loyal to Michael Jordan.
Michael Jeffrey Jordan (born February
17, 1963) is a former American professional basketball player, active
businessman, and majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. His biography on the
National Basketball Association (NBA) website states, "By acclamation, Michael
Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time."[1] Jordan was one of the
most effectively marketed athletes of his generation and was instrumental in
popularizing the NBA around the world in the 1980s and 1990s.
